I don't even know what aizen's power is. I don't understand it
I've read the series and I'm still not sure
That’s true. “What you thought you saw, wasn’t what you saw.”I don't know who is more broken, but I can confidently say that Madara is more "fun broken" than Aizen, who is just "stupid broken." There is nothing exciting or entertaining about watching characters with the kinds of powers that Aizen has. At least Madara leads to cool choreographed fights.
Complete hypnosis. He can basically control what all of your 5 senses experience. And all he needs to do is make you see his zanpaktou release - which he did to basically the entire Soul Society while telling them it was something else. He can also make a bunch of people experience the same illusion. It’s broken as hell.
I agree but Madara lost to Mr. Game & Watch.
The worst part is that Boruto proves that Madara was right. The series segues directly in to a sequel that is a continuation of their war reliant system. Their world is rotten and everyone lives at the expense of someone else be it the smaller villages or the children raised and trained to be ninjas for hire for government missions. They should have just let him create his Tsukuyomi matrix and called it a day.Madara, both for in-universe and out-of-universe reasons.
I'm not a fan of Aizen the walking plot black hole, but he was thematically consistent. He was a man who was too awesome and powerful, all the way back from the beginning. He was bored, bored of his own existence and sought anything possible for a challenge, so he sought the Hogyoku to make himself as powerful as he could, but at the same time raised up Ichigo. It's shown in how the Hogyoku abandons him in the end, because it's granting him his ultimate wish, to be defeated.
So while in-universe, Aizen was laid low because of his own unconscious desires, Madara in-universe was brought down by a true deus ex machina, an out-of-nowhere lore expansion.that was only conjured to break out of the plot dead end he had become. And it wasn't just a plot dead end about *power*, mind. As you see with Aizen, any writer can write their way out of an OP villain if they want. No, Madara's problem was that he was, thematically, unbeatable. It's not that he was right about Infinite Tsukuyomi, but his gripe with the world was really about the Duality of Man, about how every victory needs a defeat and every light casts a shadow. Kishimoto created a villain whose ideals were so well-crafted that Naruto could not talk-no-jutsu his way out of it, he could not defeat Madara in the way that he brought down any others.
Bleach used "lol you thought you won?" as a replacement for actual fighting for its last hundred chapters or so.
Yep never used it. Even Kenpachi got to show off his Bankai (and do nothing useful with it except make another broken character stronger)
Every fight in the last arc of Bleach was just this but not a joke.
Yhwach, 100%. Like I still don't get how Yhwach was actually beaten, his omnipotent powers just kind of stopped at the end for no real reason (and before someone points out the arrow ex machina, they established it had already warn off by the time Yhwach lost)
eh that’s really nothing. Gremmy was summoning meteors and literal vacuum space casually, and Ywhach was a tier above that. Aizen still had Ywhach sweating. If it wasn’t for Aizen, Tsukishima, Ichigo, and Ishida’s late game brokenness Ywhach would have won. Every single one of them was necessary to beat the main bad guy.
